Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

Anxious and Overwhelmed?

Is your anxiety holding you back? Two million people in the UK, are affected with anxiety and/or panic disorders. Stress is cited as the most common work related illness.

Anxiety is a natural response to danger and usually occur when your unconscious mind is trying to protect you from what it perceives as a threatening situation, and also when you are worrying about the future.

Everyday stress is good for you because it motivates you to meet your goals at work or at home. However, if it becomes out of control, it can lead to anxiety symptoms such as panic attacks, high blood pressure, worrying, palpitations, a sense of dread, IBS, insomnia, headaches, general exhaustion, or a general loss of focus. Ongoing anxiety disorders could also affect your sleep, personal life as well as your ability to perform well at work.

Hypnotherapy for Anxiety may help you to get the balance right between working effectively under pressure and managing your stresses. So you begin to feel in a relaxed state and back in control.

Types of Anxiety

Fears and Phobias

Many people have fears. They are often irrational and cause avoidance behaviours in individuals, even though they know their fear is not rooted in reality, phobic individuals can not help but feel that way. Phobias are among the most common afflictions that affect a person's daily life. Common phobias include fear of small spaces, driving, needles. Read more here.

Generalized Anxiety Disorders

With Generalized Anxiety disorder, almost any situation might cause someone to feel anxious or worried, they may not remember feeling relaxed for quite some time. As soon as one bout of anxious thoughts is under control, another takes its place so they become caught in a negative thinking trap.

Social Anxiety

Social anxiety sufferers are focused on what other people will think of them. Thoughts that they are inadequate or not good enough can be very overwhelming, making these individuals feel like they cannot function normally in social situations. Anxiety-induced worries about others perceptions may lead to disastrous effects on confidence levels, self-esteem and can impact professional success if not managed.

Panic Attacks

Generally, panic attacks are a common issue with anxiety disorder. They can leave you feeling like you have no control and produce genuine physical symptoms such as rapid increases in heartbeat or churning stomach sensations. These unpleasant bodily experiences often cause people to worry about experiencing another attack which sets off the cycle of fear all over again.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder

OCD can cause sufferers to miss out on opportunities. In extreme cases, it may even be difficult for people with OCD to maintain a job or relationships because they constantly feel the need to complete certain rituals and routines that could take up their whole day.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

PTSD is a condition that occurs when someone experiences trauma and then has trouble processing or healing from it. Symptoms of PTSD include re-experiencing the traumatic event, avoiding objects or situations that remind them of their trauma, feelings of aggression towards others or themselves, which disrupts daily activities.

Hypnotherapy for Anxiety Reviews

Jo is an excellent therapist, very thorough in her aim to identify and meet the needs of her clients. Her sessions and techniques were very useful and extremely helpful within my particular situation and her relaxation scripts beneficial for use at home and after individual sessions.

I would recommend Jo highly to friends and colleagues as her sessions certainly met my individual needs.

I feel in different space to when I contacted Jo. More grounded and balanced. The presenting anxiety is much more manageable. I feel that the treatment was successful.

I liked some of the techniques Jo suggested to use when anxiety hits. I very much enjoyed the hypnotherapy and NLP session and found this to be effective. I was surprised at what came to mind at times and how deep the process went. I also enjoyed the MP3 recordings which I used to  enhance and deepen the impact of the sessions in the weeks that followed.

When I came to see Jo I was in quite a bad way and unable to find a way through my severe anxiety. While everything wasn’t immediately fixed, she gave me enough building blocks to manage the panic attacks and anxiety so I could start to manage my life a little more than I had been able to the previous 3 months. 

I found a safe space within Jo’s sessions where I didn’t feel judged and could be very honest. Because of that I found it easier to settle into the sessions and really work hard to manage my anxiety.

Jo made me feel comfortable from the word go. I found it easy to discuss my problem, get to the route of it, and then move on from it quite quickly. In a nutshell, Jo gave me a new way of looking at what I thought was a problem, which now no longer bothers me. 

I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking positive change.

Jo is a highly skilled therapist and she put me at ease right from the start. By using gentle questioning she was able to support me in thinking about a difficult subject. 

I felt very cared for and that Jo gave me the space to make connections and gain some valuable insights.

I first discovered Jo a few years ago while going through a very stressful time in my life when I was feeling anxious and had difficulty sleeping.

I attended a hypnotherapy course which really helped me to feel calm and sleep better. I still see Jo on a regular basis for reflexology which I love, I find it soothing and always leave feeling calm and refreshed.

I would highly recommend Jo she's amazing!
